I had made this twice, each time a little different. Sorry to say, this is not a dish I will make again.
The first time I made this I, as other suggested, did not cook the pasta prior to added it to the crock pot and only added one egg and about a 1 1/2 cups extra milk. After four hours (good thing my DH forgot to turn it on before he left for work), it seemed almost perfect--nice and creamy. I added a little more milk and turned it to low to run a couple errands. It turned out to be one big pasta stuck together. With a little more milk right before serving to help loosen it up, mixing it well (realize the pasta is almost a mush at this point). It was okay. My 4 1/2 yo who lives for Mac and cheese (99% homemade) didn't eat all of it.
The next time I made this, I did cook the pasta til al'dente. I omitted the egg and used 1/2 half and half and 1/2 milk, as well as the evap. milk. It did not turn out well at all without any recovery efforts. DS even said he didn't like it and didn't want to finish it. I was able to save it by putting it on the stove and adding more liquid to it, a little nutmeg and dry mustard. He gobbled it up. Seems like the family does not like the custard style Mac-N-Cheez.
